Pros: Lots of long holes for huge drives.
Interesting pin placements.
Gorgeous views during your walk.
Holes not crowded with trees for me to bounce off.
Cons: None for me.
Other Thoughts: I would love to see more holes as this is a huge area with tons of room for more. I didn't see the extra "woods" holes others talked about, but I wish I had. I also wish I had more time to stay and play this course over and over!

Pros: This is a beautiful course, with a nice flowing layout. It's got several challenging holes, with some having long distances, others having water hazards, and tricky basket placement. The surrounding landscape is really nice, too.
Cons: It's only 9 holes. Hopefully the good people who made this course, can expand it in the future. Until then, I'll just play it twice, or three times.
Other Thoughts: Now I'm off to work on getting more distance from my drive. See you out there.

The First Course in Ocean County
4 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Newly constructed course that is now 18 holes with dual tee pads at 9 of them in beautiful Ocean County Park in Lakewood, NJ. Primarily open course with a few peeks into the woods and mature trees scattered throughout. Brand new Innova Disc Catcher baskets. Good sized, 5 x 10 tee pads with fly pad surfacing, Good distance and hole variety which should appeal to all skill levels. Features a hanging basket and an elevated basket. Water and pavement OB areas come into play and challenge players on several holes. Navigation is pretty easy with very visible "next tee" signs near each basket. Temporary plastic signs at each hole while we await permanent signs being made by the park. All holes have large log benches. Amenities like bathrooms, picnic areas and water fountains are on the premises. A "lost disc" box, plastic bag dispenser, scorecard box and welcome kiosk greet visitors at hole 1. Park grounds are impeccably maintained.
Cons: Due to damage from Hurricane Sandy, the cutting of live trees was prohibited during construction, thus more wooded holes were not designed. Pedestrians and park patrons will be a factor from time to time when playing. Area high schools use part of the grounds for Cross Country. Not much elevation- welcome to the Jersey Shore. A few low lying areas collect water after heavy rain. Geese droppings can a bit of a nuisance. New signs must be made to reflect the new 18 hole layout.
Other Thoughts: Ocean County Park represents years of hard work and commitment in providing a sorely needed, quality course to the Jersey Shore area for disc golfers. This is a really nice playing experience here, and the local following is tremendous. The level of care that has gone into the course is outstanding, and park officials have been easy to work with and supportive. Permanent signs will hopefully be installed by the spring and secondary tee pads and/or basket placements are in the works. Come to the Jersey Shore, hit the beach in Point Pleasant and drive 15 minutes inland to OCP for a couple rounds of disc golf!!
